Love, exciting and new,
Come aboard,
We're expecting you!
The LOVE....BOAT.....!
(Jack Jones; 1977.)
*********************
"I liked him better,
as Captain Stubing, Lord.
He was just so HANDSOME,
in that CAPTAIN's
uniform."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]
[QUIETLY GIVING
PERMISSION,
TO THE DEVIL.]

(Yawn!)
(Sigh!)
"If you're a 'Love Boat' fan,
Lord.....
it's no fun seeing him,
looking so OLD,
Ya KNOW?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]
[WATCH A STAR
EXPLODING,
ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THE UNIVERSE.]

(Shrug.)
"The movie was very heart-
warming, and all....."

[NOD.]
[GENTLY TOUCH THE
AMERICAN FLAG,
STANDING ON THE
SURFACE OF THE MOON.]

"But....."
(Shrug.)
"It was a little DEPRESSING.
It sort'a reminded me,
of 'The Summer of 42';
only 'The Summer a' 42'
was a better movie."

[NOD.]
[MOVE SOME
ROCK PARTICLES ON
PLANET VEGA.]

"What with all those
CEMETARY scenes,
and all......"

[CALM NOD.]
[PUT A HAND UNDER
THE SOUTHERN AXIS
OF THE EARTH.]

"Too much talk 'a DEATH,
and HELL,
in it."

[NOD.]

"I guess,
that's why people don't
like to TALK.. about You,
Lord."

"Why,
child."

"Cuz."
(Yawn.)
"You're,
Ya know....."

[SMILE!]
"What,
little one?"

"Well....I don't want to
say anything politically
INCORRECT,
but...."

[LAUGH!]
"What,
My beloved?"

"Well......I
think that most
people just associate
You,
with DEATH."

[QUIET GAZE.]
"Yes.
I know,
child."

(Yawn!)
(Untie a sneaker.)
"Plus,
in the movie....
they talked about
Jesus Christ,
a lot:
it was a little SHOCKING."

[SMILE!]

"It was WEIRD."

[SMILE!]

"Yeah;
it's a good thing,
I didn't go with my
SISTER. She would 'a
walked OUT."

[SILENCE.]

"She would 'a
said:
'Are you trying to
PROSELYTIZE ME,
AGAIN?',
and,
just left."

[SILENCE.]

"Yeah;
and, that would'a
been 5 bucks,
WASTED."

[SILENCE.]

"That's all the movie
was, Lord: 5 bucks.
But, it was really SHORT.
I think it was only an hour
and a half: somethin'
like that."

[PATIENT NOD.]
[TOUCH A STORM-SPOT,
ON THE SUN.]

"It was a little WEIRD."
(Sip lemon-twist-soda.)
"I'm surprised anybody
was THERE."

[RUN A HAND
THROUGH THE MILKY-WAY.]
"Where,
child?"

(Irritable shout.)
"At the THEATRE!
I'm SUPRISED,
ANYBODY WAS THERE!"
(Irritable, impatient
squint at the ceiling.)
ARE YOU,
LISTENING
TO ME?"

[CALM NOD.]

(Yell up at the ceiling spots.)
"I BET YOU
HAVEN'T HEARD
A WORD, I SAID!"

"Yes,
I have,
child."

"YEAH?
So...
WHAT I' BEEN
TALKIN'
ABOUT?"

"Life,
child.
Life."
********************
I am
the Light
of the
world.
[John 8:12]
